Top Ten Metal Songs that Will Get You Into the ArtistsSome of these are their most popular/user-favorite songs, while others aren't. Here are ten songs I found that will get you to enjoy the artists, that some you may have heard of, and others probably not.
The Top Ten
Amon Amarth riffs are amazing - one of the best bands for riffs. - Metal_Treasure
In case you need something extreme, heavy, fast, brutal and technical... - Metal_Treasure
I guess the impressive vocals of Tobias Sammet reminding of Bruce Dickinson and the energy of this song can get the attention of a metal fan. - Metal_Treasure
This song is a world of epicness and perfectionism that makes many metal bands look like dilettantes. - Metal_Treasure
Actually breaking the law got me into Judas Priest - zxm
To be honest, if I hadnt've heard of this song, I probably wouldn't care about this band to this day.
One of my favorite metal songs of all time, and not only it got me into the band, but it got me into thrash metal bands outside the Big Four. This is a must-listen to.
Yes, Holy Diver is his signature song from his solo career but this song is awesome, too. I think Rainbow In the Dark is one of Dio's best vocal performances, if not the best. - Metal_Treasure
And the catchiest thing of this song was keyboards riff - zxm
Ok, so maybe its not Dio's best song, or nowhere even near the best, but it was good enough to get me into the band itself.
agreed - zxm
Maybe... if the riff wasn't a variation of Master Of Puppets by Metallica... - Metal_Treasure
Probably the first thrash metal song I've heard of not by the big four.
This seems to be one of my favorite Black Sabbath songs, and it got me into this band.
Nihilist seems to be probably one of the most underrated metal bands of all time, and this is a really great thrash metal song. I first heard of this song when playing a game called Skate 3. It seems that the people who made that game and selected the songs, must have a great taste in music. That was also the game where I first heard of the power metal band "Dream Evil".
Just play the song sample to hear the speed of this new thrash band. They were teens when released this song (2013). - Metal_Treasure
I agree, this song is awesome - riff, vocals...everything. - Metal_Treasure
IN THE HALL... OF THE MOUNTAIN KING!
All great picks! A lot of these songs helped get me into the artists! - Brobusky
This song explains why Death is one of my favorite bands to this day.
